One of the many must-see's in Sutter Creek is the J. Monteverde General Store. Built in 1898, it was operated as a general store well into the 1960's when the owner passed away and what was left turned out to be a one-of-a-kind time tunnel into the past. After being vacant for some 20 years and, amazingly, never disturbed, the store is now open again as a free museum (donations accepted).

Gold Country (also known as the Mother Lode) is in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The mild climate, above the fog (at 1,200') but below the snow, makes the area pleasant year 'round. Sutter Creek and nearby Drytown (shown here) are brimming with antique, specialty shops and fine restaurants.



The area is also home to two public 18 hole golf courses. Trout and bass fishing is as close as ten minutes away. Skiers will relish the realization that Kirkwood, Bear Valley and Heavenly are all within an easy commute. Bring the bikes and ride the country roads through gentle hills or go for long walks among the shaded oaks. Want a challenge to work out the "City kinks", you can visit the nearby California Caverns.

Amador County is home to dozens of award winning wineries. Most have tours and wine tasting. Are you a photographer? There is no end to the beautiful hills, rushing rivers and the multitude of historic reminders of Gold Country. During March enjoy the spectacular Daffodill Hill.
